    Seth Rogen's Hilarity for Charity

    ★★★

    This special, in which Seth Rogen and his wife put on a show to raise money for Alzheimer's research, is hit and miss.

    Rogen calls up his band of fellow comedians to do sketches and stand up sets. They're funny, but sometimes too short and suffer from bad editing and some awkward camerawork.
